18. And Now, The End Is Near?


As I mentioned once a long time ago (and quite possibly in a galaxy far, far away), I described this blog as an exercise in OCD.  When I create an entry, I am posting it to four blogging sites simultaneously — Xanga, LiveJournal, Blogger, and WordPress.  Part of the reasoning behind this decision was a desire to make it available to as wide an audience as possible.  Another part was using this as a way to understand the intricacies of each blogging platform.

It seems that I may have been more foresighted than I realized.  Those of you reading this on Xanga already know of what I speak, so this is for those reading one of the other sites.  Several weeks ago, it was announced that Xanga would be changing at the end of this month.  Indeed, there is the distinct possibility that it may disappear completely.  In any event, it seems that my next entry may be posted to only three sites instead of four.

If something does happen to Xanga, I shall be . . . disappointed, to say the least.  I think I mentioned this previoiusly, but I have found the Xanga interface the easiest to use of all four sites.  On the other hand, I do have an advantage over most of my fellow Xangans.  I have been reading various notifications of where people are relocating their blogs.  Most of the migration seems to be to WordPress.  Well, I am already there.  Or here, as the case may be.

I have no idea what will happen in a few days.  I shall hope for the best; at least I have already planned for the worst.
